Somewhere I have one of those neck wraps that stays cold. I really like it in the summer. Especially for camping on the hot days. I need to find it and get it ready for this weekend!

Maybe a straw hat with minifan in the crown might help also.

Doc sez he’s gonna freeze ‘em, don’t sweat it. Close ta painless.

Much rather do that then have the dentist dig out an old fillin’ ‘n replace it. That ain’t no fun.

Going to the dentist is never any fun. I went to the DR. today for my 6 month check up. I've lost some weight, which is  a start. High Blood Pressure and Type 2 Diabetic(old cop diseases) are my problems. I guess that's not too bad for an ol' cop that's almost 61 years old and doesn't take care of himself.

I know this aint the music thread, but this seemed ta fit

The rooms were so much colder then.
My father was a soldier then.
And times were very hard.
When I was young.

When I was young.
I smoked my first cigarette at ten.
And for girls, I had a bad yen
When I was young.

When I was young it was more important.
Pain more painful, the laughter much louder, yeah.
When I was young.

When I was young.
I met my first love at thirteen.
She was brown, and I was pretty green.
And I learned quite a lot.
When I was young.

My faith was so much stronger then.
I believed in fellow men.

We sell lots a them Sunbody's, here in the OWS and down in the hat dept, the #1 choice of the real cowboy in summer, also sell them a lot with big brims to folks with skin cancer, seems some of the skin doctors know we have them and send them here.  Only have had two complaints about them.

1.  The don't hold up up you have it fall off and it goes through the Brush Hog.
2.  Ditto on the baler.

Had a guy brought one in tryin' to replace, one not made anymore.  Was beat-up and muddy, he took it and soaked it in the bathtub, stiff brused it and then brought it in and I reshaped it.  Not to bad, it was on the porch, the Hallam tornader took part of his house and the porch, it was found 2 miles away. Shocked

In the winter, once a month or so, spray it with a spay bottle and water, in low humidity the will get a bit brittle

Buy them a bit on the tight side, wet it, slam it on yer head and wear it till it's dry, will fit like a custom hat and stay on yer head real good.
